Shared SSL IP
Discover what a shared SSL IP is and in what way you can use one to easily put in place an SSL certificate.
If you would like to protect the data that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting
plans, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Since our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically as soon as it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a protected and trustworthy website without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated servers
and the setup takes merely two clicks inside the hosting Control Panel regardless if you purchase an SSL via our enterprise or via a third-party supplier. There won't be any difference in terms of how the certificate works or encodes the information that your website visitors submit, so your Internet site shall be protected without having to spend any additional cash for a dedicated IP. The sole thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your site in this way rather than inputting your domain. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs ordered via our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
